Android G1 APRS Map
I was going to write an APRS map app, but it seems almost trivial. I read this about the iPhone and the same thing works:
  1. Enter the android Maps app
  2. Press the search button (magnifying glass)
  3. Paste in the following URL: http://aprs.fi/aprsupdate.kml?call=wa5znu-11
It doesn't do tracks, but it shows the current location. The regular aprs.fi site Google Map works to show tracks, but it's a little fussy to operate the scroll and zoom controls.

Greetings. Is this an android app or an iphone app?

It's just the default behavior of the Google Maps app in Android. When the browser receives a KML file, it asks you what (registered) app to use to open it. Google Maps is one. You can also use some of the Geocaching apps and they'll give you a compass bearing and distance.
